Reviews and Endorsements

"This is a remarkable collection of papers. Each one is worth spending time with individually, while the collection as a whole is an invaluable survey of the Contemporary Freudian tradition. Ken Robinson and Joan Schachter, prominent members of that tradition, have put together almost 20 papers, spanning some 40 years, which address themes such as the unconscious mind; psychic development; the body and psychosexuality; and aggression and destructiveness. Some are acknowledged classics; others may take the reader into new territory. Together they show the evolution over time of Contemporary Freudian thinking and reveal the richness and diversity of what is a central current in today's psychoanalysis." - Dr Michael Parsons is a Fellow Training Analyst of the British Psychoanalytical Society.

"This collection of papers of the wide family of Contemporary Freudian Analysts will help all of us, including those in the UK, to keep Freudian Thinking in a lively and creative way. The collection exemplifies the enormous wealth of Contemporary Freudian thinking. Thanks to the efforts of the editors Ken Robinson and Joan Schachter, this book should become obligatory reading for all analysts." - Dr Elisabeth Brainin, member and Training Analyst of the Viennese Psychoanalytic Society.
